    Hi everyone, I am trying to come up with an idea for a larger style handbag. I prefer hobo bags. I want to make a spring looking one but I am not sure what pattern to use. I have made the bow tucks but don't really want to make that one. I am hoping someone knows of a free handbag link to share. I am not so good at zippers but I also don't like my purse hanging open. I am willing to try the zipper thing again but can't seem to figure out what to make...please help :)

    There are hundreds of handbag patterns that are free esp the hobo type. Just do a search useing diffrent wording like ,hobo bag pattern, purse pattern , etc, I have spent literally hours looking at free purse patterns lol. henrettia's hand bags, sew mama sew, all people quilt are just a few sites I can think of.
